Hand-pump @ union hotel. Pours near clear amber orange with resilient light off white head and excellent specked lace. Light herbs, floral notes, grains, light caramel, vanilla and toast. Light med body, low carbonation. Finish is light balanced sweet and touch grainy and bitter. Satisfying well done beer.

BB 28/08/2016. Poured a crystal clear amber with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished slowly and laced very well. Carbonation moderate. Aroma subtly of slightly sweet malt. taste slightly sweet with a hint of spices and low bitterness. Light to medium body. Crisp, smooth and slightly dry with a bit of an unpleasant tarty finish which is a bit off-putting. Ordinary.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
375 ml can. Red-brown body with a tight white head. Not much on the nose - biscuit mostly with some pine and flowers. Taste reveals a bit more with a grassy bitterness and a touch of pepper overlaying the malty sweetness. Lingering finish with a light biscuit aftertaste. Ok but a bit subdued overall.

Missed this on tap several times so I bought a can to try it. Pours reddish amber with minimal head and only modest aroma. A nice bitter base from the hops that lingered on the palate. A decent beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark amber with a fluffy off white head. Nose is pretty muted, a little caramel and some stone fruit. Flavor is lots of caramel, orange, a little stone fruit, and then a very very grainy, malt based finish with a decent dose of bitterness. I don’t have much to say about this. It’s clearly a ’crowd pleaser’ beer that’s meant to appeal to a less adventurous palate, and that really bores me. Two strikes Young Henry’s.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Amber with an off white head. Flabby aroma of biscuit, caramel, pears. Thinnish, moderate carbonation. Some passionfruit, vague citrus and pepper and a decent bitter finish cheer things up fair bit after the underwhelming aroma. Not bad.

Taste at the Pot Belly, Canberra. An okay English style bitter - this style is not my thing, I must admit, so this rating is a bit biased against the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4%ABV. English Bitter
Tapped out a nice deep amber, 16ºSRM producing a bounteous citrusy hoppy nose.
The palate is full of Lemon and Grapefruit meaning that there is a citrusy tang to the bitters. Finishes off neatly with a slightly grassy bitter herb finish. American or NZ hops. Amarillo, Nelson sauvin and citra hops are hinted at.
Goes on favorites list.
